Default TOO LONG... Mr. Miller please advise

I had applied for my self and my wife for the Canadian P.R through the buffalo Centre back in August of 2002. AOR was recieved in December 2002. File was transferred to LA in Janurary 2003. Interview was held in LA in May 2004 and Medicals were done in June 2004. Also at the end of the Interview i was asked to send in my medicals and the Landing Fees, which i have already sent.

I am still waiting for the passport request, and i was wondering that how long does it take.

It seems that currently and depending on the nationality of the applicant processing is taking longer times. You see that a lot of guys including myself have applied even before you did and we are all still waiting. Have more patience and hopefully it will happen very soon.

Your background/security check has been initiated after successful interview and it may take anywhere from few months to well over a year to complete, depending from your background, activities and associations, nationality and countries you resided in, etc..

My interview was held in 1st week of May 2004 in LA. Appointment was at 9am but our turn came in at 12 noon.... 3 hrs long wait. Any way, it took about 1 hr for the interview.

The immigration officer basically asked me questions like:-

1. About my educational background. Why did i went to the US for my bachelors degree?
2. Technical work related questions?
3. asked some basic questions to my wife.
4. did not asked anything about my english proficiency or IELTS TEST. I did not give any kind of language profiency test. may be because i have an american degree...
4. he went in quite detail about my work experience..

hope that the above helps
